Big Brown House offers tailored support services to meet the individual needs of children, young people and families. Our programs are designed in consultation with children and young people to cater to their interests, strengths and the goals they identify. Our tailored mentoring programs can be adapted for a variety of abilities and can address complex needs.

Tailored Mentoring

Our Tailored Mentoring program provides an opportunity for young people to spend time with a positive role model who will help them build skills and resilience through targeted activities.

Children and young people are matched with mentors who participate in activities of interest to the young person. Our mentors are trained in therapeutic care and acknowledge achievement.
